Shane on Preemptive Strike. Boltergiest to the rig...

Description 

Pretty tough start. Don't go too far right or the climbing gets easier and not as fun. Pull the the really thin technical start to a technical slab. Climb through several bolts until you reach the steeper jug pulling section to the anchors. Fun line. Bottom felt a little harder than 10c to me but it was we and I had very little skin left on my fingers from two weeks of climbing


Location 

this is just to the left of boltergeist


Protection 

11 bolts and bolted anchors

The first couple moves are 10c. The rest is much much easier. Very fun and long route.

The top looks like it might be tough, but the jugs are too good!
